Miscanthus carbon inputs induce no priming

 

This paper, entitled "Carbon inputs from Miscanthus displace older soil organic carbon without inducing priming" uses the stable isotope 13C to trace the Miscanthus carbon inputs/outputs of soils over 4 years of growth on a commercial plantation in the UK. Results comparing controls to bare plots suggest that neither fresh inputs from belowground or aboveground sources (i.e. roots or litter, respectively) stimulated increased respiration - a common proxy for priming effects The abstract can be seen below and the full text can be accessed through this link
